Is it imminent?

I was quick to point out the 'Bird's rumor that the deal is done. Hearing it from a source that isn't a liar and a con artist made me get behind the concept that the deal was indeed done.

But is it?

That's not questioning Hockeybird's reporting or my own. It's actually questioning if the Players themselves will get behind this CBA deal after the NHL and PA announce it. They Players Association themselves still need to reatify the deal...

And Brian at On The Wings reports how that is more difficult than we may know.
